Stay on the phone, you'll eventually get through and then just explain what happened and you should be set.

I got it activated. the macine told me it could not be activate becouse it installed on 6 computers and hangs up on me. I had to call back to get a person. and they kept asking me how many computers its been on. i told them 1

I did replace my cpu and mother borad a year ago, then upgraded the video card.
then added more memory then upgraded my bios to uefi.

does that count as 6 computers? i never want this problem again.
